Head's Welcome

Welcome to our website; I hope I will have the opportunity to welcome you to the school in person one day. Should you come, you will find a happy, lively, vibrant school in which everyone is valued and life-long learning is developed.

Learning is at the heart of everything we do. We believe our children need a sound grasp of educational fundamentals such as the “Three Rs” (Reading, Writing and Arithmetic); we also believe more than this is necessary for them to feel personally fulfilled and be prepared for success in a rapidly changing future. Thus, a blend of traditional and innovative teaching methods ensures our children achieve excellent academic standards whilst also developing creatively, socially and individually. Our latest inspection report described our children’s learning as “a significant success” and attributes their good progress to “the excellent teaching, their extremely positive attitudes to learning and an imaginative international curriculum that effectively meets their needs and captures their imaginations.”

Our excellent staff stay at the forefront of current educational thinking by both participating in and leading teacher development courses internationally, ensuring they are able to provide the finest education to the children in our school. Through our involvement with COBIS (Council of British International Schools) and ISC (Independent Schools Council) we are able not only to share in the ideas of others but also to lead with our own. Our innovative and highly effective policies now influence teaching in British schools worldwide.

We are delightfully situated in modern buildings set in a rolling landscape of playgrounds and woodland in the heart of Ankara, Turkey’s capital city. Our diverse school population comes from all over the world; indeed, we are the school of choice for many Turkish families who value our international flavour, excellent academic standards and outstanding facilities.

Please do explore our website further. If you would like any further information, do not hesitate to contact us.

With best wishes,

Ken Page
